Capital Reef National Park Map

NPSCapt Reef NP 

Utah’s National Parks are unbelievably beautiful. Enjoying one National Park at a time would require months. Hiking, off-roading and camping are always popular during the summer months, yet most of the parks are open all year long.

NPSCapital Reef is a fertile high desert canyon with plenty of great slot canyons and archways to explore. The main campground on the highway is located next to a historic fruit orchard.

camptruckCathedral Valley is a cool off-road destination for secluded camping, way off the paved highway. Self sufficient campers only!

The Burr Trail is a historic graded road, with steep switchbacks and red rock scenery. This main backcountry route connects the National Park to remote BLM land, south of the park.

A day hike to Mount Whitney and back to the Portal is not possible, so an overnight backpacking trip is a given. High elevations makes for thinner air and more challenging conditions. Permits are required to hike this popular peak. They limit the amount of people that can be on these trails. A lottery tackles the choice of who gets to go this year. Annual deadline is April 30 @ recreation.gov
